WC came in to the game against Fort Knox as underdogs.
But they came away with a playoff berth and a 41-19 win.
“Our team was excited all week for the opportunity to play our way into the playoffs,” Sagrecy said. “And they played like it, too.”
The WC offense was led by senior quarterback Tylyn Byas, who rushed for 287 yards and four touchdowns on the evening. He is now 34 rushing yards away from having 1,000 on the year.
He only completed one pass on the night but made it count, delivering a 15-yard strike to senior wideout Micah Devine.
Morgan Churchill, who had been the starting quarterback before an injury derailed much of his season, played at running back and also delivered on the ground.
He ran for 65 yards and a touchdown on only five attempts, running over several defenders along the way.
“The addition of Morgan running the ball like he did, that really helped Tylyn find some room out there,” Sagrecy said. “He looked good out there.”
Sagrecy said the biggest factor, though, was the holes that the offensive line was able to create, crediting all five players up front for their efforts.
“Sean Lewis, Jarrett Mattingly, Adan Garza, Adam Smith and Trevor Sagrecy played a great game out there,” Sagrecy said. “They don’t always get the credit they deserve. That was their best game of the season.”
However, the win brings about a familiar foe: the Glasgow Scotties, a team that has sent WC home in the last two seasons’ playoffs.
But Sagrecy sees the matchup as a chance to measure how much his teams has grown.
“I told them before the game that if their goal was to beat Fort Knox, then they should also have the goal to beat Glasgow,” Sagrecy said. “And they showed they still had some fight in them.”
